A Tribute to the Past Hurlers of the Parish by Tom Dineen
Two surviving members of the
1913 Championship Winning side are still with
us. They are Maurice Treacy who captained the
team and Dan Glavin. Six of the famous 1926/30
side are also still with us, namely Sonny Walsh,
Bruddy Champ, Jeremiah O'Connor, Ned Kearney,
John Paul Reidy and Dr. Diarmuid Reidy Their
names and fame will live forever in the hearts
of every Irish Gael throughout North Kerry.
They evoke golden memories of great deeds of
bygone days. Tributes must also be paid to
the victorious 1974 Co Champions whose illustrious
feat brought honour and glory to the Parish
of St Bernard.
